Readiness: Having What It Takes

I don’t know Desmond Bishopnotes. I’m more interested in most supper bowls than I am in any Super Bowl. And I’m no cheerleader (though I should be a much better prayer leader) for President Obama. But this, in my estimation, is a disappointing loss:

When the Green Bay Packers visited the White House on Friday to celebrate the team’s Super Bowl title, linebacker Desmond Bishopnotes wasn’t with his teammates. He had forgotten his license on the team charter plane and without a license, there’s no getting past White House security.

It didn’t matter who he is.

It didn’t matter what he’d accomplished.

It didn’t matter how far he’d come.

It didn’t matter with whom he was.

It didn’t matter that he knew the requirements for admission.

He wasn’t ready. He didn’t meet all the requirements.

And his experience made me think of this man’s experience:

“And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:

“And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.

“Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 22:11-13).

Other Biblical passages fit as well. Please use the comment section below to add one(s) that come to your mind.

Above all, love God!
